Big news in the comedy world: Monty Python is set to reunite for a stage show.
Python member Terry Jones shared the news with the BBC on Tuesday.
"We're getting together and putting on a show -- it's real," he said. "I'm quite excited about it. I hope it makes us a lot of money. I hope to be able to pay off my mortgage!"
The reunion is expected to be announced officially at a press conference being held in London on Thursday. The announcement will be made live, according to a tweet from Eric Idle:

The five surviving members last performed together in 1998 at the Aspen Comedy Festival. The sixth member, Graham Chapman, died of cancer in 1989.
